Researchers in DRI's Division of Earth and Ecosystem Sciences come from a wide variety of scientific backgrounds but have a broad unifying interest in the causes, mechanisms, and history of landscape change over a range of spatial and temporal scales.
Landscapes in this context include the geomorphic surface environment, the soils mantling the surface, and the vegetation and other biota (including humans) that inhabit and modify it.
